    Hi guys. I'm looking for a Favicon plugin. Yes, I have looked and yes, I have found, but none of them fulfill my requirements.

    I need a plug-in that will add a favicon to my site but not only a favicon.ico one. I need to have a favicon for iOS devices.

    Now I have found a plug-in called "Multicon", but it's incomplete. Apparently, it only accepts a certain resolution for iOS devices for the first model of the iPhone (57x57 icons). This is a problem because a website can have 72x72, 114x114, and 144x144 icons as well.

    The following is the code I use in my non-wordpress site to set the favicons:

    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="../assets/ico/favicon.ico">
        <link rel="apple-touch-icon-precomposed" sizes="144x144" href="../assets/ico/apple-touch-icon-144-precomposed.png">
        <link rel="apple-touch-icon-precomposed" sizes="114x114" href="../assets/ico/apple-touch-icon-114-precomposed.png">
        <link rel="apple-touch-icon-precomposed" sizes="72x72" href="../assets/ico/apple-touch-icon-72-precomposed.png">
        <link rel="apple-touch-icon-precomposed" href="../assets/ico/apple-touch-icon-57-precomposed.png">

    It's really important my site supports them all. With my non-wordpress site, when the user adds my site to their iOS homescreen, the icon is downloaded and used in the homescreen and it looks beautiful. If it can't find a favicon, it uses a preview.

    If anyone can recommend a plugin that accepts all these icon sizes plus the standard 16x16 favicon image I will really appreciate it.

    Well I have found a way to do it manually. By editing the header.php file and it seems to be working.
